If You Liked Hitler,
You 'd Clinton
By Anthony J. Hilder & G. Richard Arnold
was Lenin's Birthday, now called Earth Day, when Herr Reno's Raiders struck again. The
time was 5:15 A.M. in the morning at Elian Gonzalez's Miami family home. Elian's legal
representatives were huddled together around a speaker phone. They were discussing the
custody arrangements. They were in the middle of negotiations with Aaron Podhurst, the
alter ego of the "Wicked Witch of Waco." When the attack came most of the family
was fast asleep.
It was then that the Attorney General's Hitlerian "Swat Squad" broke open the family's door with a battering ram. They were betrayed, as were all Americans when on December 7th, 1941 the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. While Janet Reno talked of peace, she declared war. There was no knock & no warrant. Reno's thugs entered the home with machine-guns drawn. They were aimed toward the innocent unarmed family and friends.
The government terrorists wore flack jackets. Some wore black masks, NAZI-like helmets, and hob nailed boots. Just like the Gestapo, they came, but far "better" prepared to kill, capture and control than their counter parts 60 years ago. The similarities between the Gestapo, the SS and the KGB of yesteryear are strikingly parallel. The arrogant "Alphabet Agencies" under Clinton's command today, operate like Hitler's henchmen under "the color of law."
Alan Bullock observed the parallels between the two dictatorships in his book "Hitler and Stalin." "Hitler's observance of 'legality' had always been combined with the threat of violence the threat was realized in the "symbiosis of legality and terror" that was to become the hallmark of the Third Reich."
On Easter Eve, one of the government's "Gestapo Gang" drew his gun on an unarmed five-year-old child. The women within the Gonzalez's Miami household were horrified. They were reminded of the "terror tactics" imposed by Fidel Castro and his "goon squads back in Communist Cuba." What was to be their night of nightmares made both Janet Reno & Bill Clinton, "happy". The Clinton's "were pleased with the results."
Reminiscent of Adolf Hitler's outbursts of righteous indignation, Bullock quotes the Fuhrer's stinging statement, "There will be no mercy now. Anyone who stands in our way will be cut down." Bullock observed, that Hitler's tirade" provided the "legal" warrant for the device of "protective custody" used by the Gestapo to "imprison without trial." As it was in Nazi Germany so it is in the United States as we near the 21st Century.
Donato Dalrymple, the brave Italian who saved little Elian from drowning in the Atlantic, and Elian's Floridian family, who housed, loved and protected him found themselves facing the black guns of a fascist government. They got a taste of what the New World Order is all about. The Washington Post, The New York Times and the rest of the Money Monarchy "Managed Media" are proceeding with the "character assassination" of the freedom loving family. Least we forget, it should be noted that it was the NY Times that praised Castro as the George Washington of Cuba. Least we forget, Castro has murdered over 50,000 Cubans. That's why they are risking their lives and taking to the sea to get away.
The Communazi "hit squad" came to "bag the kid." Marisleysis Gonzalez's, Elian's loving surrogate Miami mother, showed the world on the Fox TV News network how Clinton's INS agents assaulted their humble home and family. They, "came in to stick him in a bag" she said, "they put a gun in his face." But Janet Reno said the government terrorist who's gun was pointed toward Elian and his rescuer, "did not have his finger on the trigger." Who is she trying to fool but the fools. She'd get an argument from eyewitnesses who said, "The government goon squad "was threatening to blow us away." That means pulling the trigger Janet. Or is that too difficult for you to understand.
Months earlier the Cuban Communists campaigned to make little Elian "an issue." And with the help of Clinton they have. Castro has openly stated the Elian was "a child of the state." "As it was under Adolf, so it is under Fidel and Reno. The use of terror to impose tyranny lives on.
On the eve of Easter, celebrating Christ's rise the CommuFacists plotted and schemed, determined to see freedom fall. Joe Lockhart, Clinton's "mouthpiece", praised Janet Reno, saying the Attorney General "did a fine job." The Gestapo was far more civil in their arrest of the Jews in Nazi Germany than Clinton counterparts have been in this country.
The President in a press conference said, "I'm very pleased with the way she (Reno) handled it. I support the decisions that were made." Outside of the Miami home, signs comparing Hitler & Castro with the Clinton/ Gore were prevalent. Some posters depicted Janet Reno's Waco horror. Even former House Leader Newt Gingrich said, "This is just like Waco. The administration knew there were no guns in the house."
Mancow, Chicago's top talk jock, in an interview with FOX News, called Clinton the "Kidnap President." Mancow said, "This pervert of ours (Bill Clinton) is a megalomaniac. He is another Adolf Hitler." In a poll taken in the NY Post they listed the most hated individuals of the 20th Century. Clinton came in second behind Hitler. Clinton was even more despised than Josef Stalin. Not surprisingly Bill's wife, Hitlerly was listed number sixth in "the most hated" category.
Donato Dalrymple, the freedom-loving fisherman, who rescued Elian on Thanksgiving day from an almost certain deep water death in the Atlantic, described the Hitlarian Horror that morning. Donato said that Clinton's wrecking crew used foul language. They were vile, yelling, "get down or we'll shoot." It all stands to reason when one thinks of it. Janet Reno not only looks like Heinrich Himmler in drag, she acts like him too. It would appear that a New Hitlerian Dictatorship has risen from the Third Reich.
The Executive Orders, which Clinton may well be using now, gives the president "dictatorial powers". Clinton's Cronies are ignoring court orders. There is a bill HR2655 introduced by Congressman Ron Paul entitled the Separation of Powers Restoration Act which restores Constitutional law, but is meeting heavy resistance from the Clintonistas and the Pink Elephants in the Republican Party whose goal it is to establish a "One World Government."
The pressure is on according to Kendell Coffey, an attorney for Elian's Miami Family to get the child to embrace Communism and Castro. He said, "They're already trying to get him (Elian) to repudiate his request for political asylum." To do that the child must be scientifically brainwashed. At press time Elian had been brought to the Aspen Institute at Wye Plantation Compound in Maryland for a "mental adjustment." The hundred of acres of heavily guarded property, secured with listening devices and searchlights, protects Aspen's "secret brain bending projects" from the eyes of the public.
Gregory Craig, Clinton's (impeachment) attorney, is now acting on behalf of Castro. According to KSFO's Michael Savage, Craig was the attorney for Hinkley, the "would be assassin" of Ronald Reagan. Quoting Charley Reese in the Orlando Sentinel "Gregory Craig, the high-priced lawyer who suddenly materialized to represent Juan Gonzalez, who couldn't afford two seconds of Craig's time, is part of a law firm that also represents Archer Daniel Midland. Craig is ostensibly being paid by the National Council of Churches. Reese reminds us that, "Last October, Andrew Young, an ADM board member and member of the Public Policy Committee, was installed as the President of the National Council of Churches.
Archer Daniels Midland is headed up by Dwane Andreas a Trilateralist, Bilderberger, and member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Andreas is a prime mover, with Clinton, Castro, Gore, Gorbachev and Bush in the efforts to establish a Hitlerian New World Order. It is a team effort for totalitarianism. In the fall of 1995, Andreas met with Fidel Castro for a cozy dinner with Castro in New York City. Andreas announced he was going to Cuba to see his Fascist Friend in the Fatherland.
Last January the Cuban Government announced that it is moving toward a joint venture type relationship with Dwane Andreas, ADM's Trilateralist leader. Gregory Craig is a hired hand of the New Hitlerians. Craig was worried that the truth would get out if pictures of the terrorist attack on the Gonzalez's home were given to the mass media.
Reminiscent of Nazi Germany when Joseph Goebbel s controlled the "media spin," the Clinton, Castro, "Craig Coalition" is working hard to suppress all criticism. They're using the Council on Foreign Relations "propaganda polls" to make it appear that the nation is in support of this Neo-Fascism and the terror tactics. According to Dr. John Coleman, one of the worlds leading experts on how public opinion is manipulated, they are creating the "illusion of support" for the establishment elite by the mass media.
In his book The Committee of 300, Coleman states, "It is the job of polling companies to mold and shape public opinion in a way that suits the conspirators. Polls are constantly being taken by CBS-NBC-ABC, the New York Times, and Washington Post and are fed into computers at the Yankelovich, Skelley, White and Gallup Polls for comparative evaluation. WHAT WE SEE IS WHAT THE POLLSTERS THINK WE SHOULD SEE." The first polling released by the Mass Media said that Americans were supporting Reno's by a ratio of 50 to 1. This was the "biggest lie" since Joseph Goebbels said that Adolf Hitler was a "right winger."
Janet Reno, Clinton's "Black Widow Spider," who has been spinning this story, has been caught in her own web. The entire Neo-Nazi Nest of Conspirators is being exposed to the light of day. Elian, like a butterfly, has been snagged and dragged into the nest of spiders where his brain is being devoured. Aspen has links to British intelligence, TMI, The Tavistock Institute and the Club of Rome. Aspen's Wye Compound, is a highly sophisticated Frankenstein-like laboratory for mind control. You can expect Elian to walk out as a Stepford Child saying exactly what they want him to say. Sen. Jesse Helms stated "Private organizations such as the Aspen Institute disseminate and coordinate plans for this so-called New World Order." Elian has literally been delivered into the "lap of the Devil."
As for the Aspen Institute, Eustace Mullin's book The World Order on page 191, reveals ... "the personnel of the foundations are required to under go indoctrination at one or more of these Tavistock Institutions. A network of secret groups, the Mont Pelerin Society, Trilateral Commission (Bush & Clinton are members), Ditchley Foundation, and Club of Rome is a conduit for instructions to the Tavistock network." Mullins says that Tavistock has " developed the mass brain-washing techniques that were first used experimentally on American prisoners of war in Korea."
Little Elian doesn't stand a chance. While, the Pink Elephants like, Bush, Lott and Hastert wring their hands and pee in their pants. Elian's brain is being bent and twisted to accommodate Clinton, Castro and the ruthless Ms. Reno. Mullin,'s referring to the Aspen Institute, says, "it's experiments in crowd control methods have been widely used on the American public, a surreptitious but never the less outrageous assault on human freedom by modifying individual behavior through topical psychology." The Nazis and Communists developed these techniques but Tavistock and Aspen have perfected them. On page 192, of Mullin's book The World Order it reads " a single common denominator identifies the Tavistock strategy - the use of drugs." Mullins says, they have " developed such power in the U.S. that no one achieves prominence in any field unless he has been trained in behavioral science at Tavistock or one of its subsidiaries." i.e. Aspen! It should be a piece of cake to turn Elian inside out and have him speaking "their party line."
The use of "State Sanctioned Terrorism and trashing the Constitution" is nothing new for Janet Reno. The Butcher of Waco "forgot" to serve David Koresh or any of his Christian congregation a warrant. But "Dictators don't need no god Damn Warrants!" Reno's assassination team at the church in Texas opened fire on the innocent men, women and children. According to dozens of weapon and forensic experts, they torched the church and burnt the children alive.
Frank Calzon, a Latin lawyer, said over the Fox Network, "I think the administration has accepted Castro's Blackmail." We don't. All evidence points to the fact that Castro & Clinton are "on the same team". Dick Morris, the president's former advisor said, "I think the president has lost his mind to do this." When Clinton's Gestapoized goon squad struck, they screamed, "We're going to shoot." They knocked a woman to the ground and threw the cameramen to the floor. The six-year-old child terrified yelled, "Help me! Help me!"
Pat Buchanan, Reform Party candidate, talked of the police state tactics, saying, "I was stunned. The issue is police state tactics against a loving family in Miami. Where is the Republican Party? It is as if George Bush has been in hiding." Rush Limbaugh slammed the GOP too, "The failure of the Republicans in Congress to do anything on behalf of Elian Gonzalez, tells me they haven't earned our money. They don't deserve it. Until they do, I'm doing nothing to help them."
Bob Smith, the Republican Senator from New Hampshire was asked by San Francisco talk show host Mike Savage, if the Republicans were going to do anything about this massive abuse of power. Smith answered, "if they had cajones they would. But don't hold your breath Michael."
Governor Jeb Bush of Florida, like his brother, has said absolutely nothing of substance and gave no measurable support to the Cuban families fighting for their freedom. Do Castro, Clinton and Bush have a "Common Cause" that doesn't meet the eye?
It was October 12th 1979 that Fidel Castro said, "We aspire to A New World Order." George Bush repeatedly has called for "A New world Order." Richard Nixon of the Council on Foreign Relations, on February 25th 1972 toasted Chou En-lai in Peking China, called for a New World Order. Bill Clinton, like Castro & Adolf Hitler have called for a New World Order. Nelson Rockefeller, whose family funds this Neo Fascism and supplied the German U boats with fuel during the WWII, called for a Hitlarian New World Order in his speech delivered on July 25th 1968.
Now here's the kicker. It was the Houghton Brothers James and Amory, who donated the hundreds of acres, known as THE WYE PLANTATION in Maryland to the British Crown's Aspen Institute where Elian is being held prisoner.
For those who aren't convinced that Aspen's "Experimental Laboratory" at the Wye Compound where Elian is held incommunicado is biased and carrying out Castro's commands read this! It was James & Amory Houghton who donated the Wye Plantation for Aspen's Frankensteinian Experiments.
We are asking you to do some research. Who helped pay promote Fidel Castro's 1979 speech that called for a Hitlerian New World Order that was published verbatim in the New York Times. It was run as an advertisment. Who paid for it? We know that Averill Harriman was a contributor to the Communist Cause and a major financier of Adolf Hitler through Brown Brothers Harriman. Averill was a full fledged member of the Faustian Financial Fraternity known as the Skull and Bones, as was his business partner Senator Prescott Bush. Were they involved in bringing Communism to Cuba and Castro to power?
If you don't think that Castro doesn't have Juan Miguel Gonzalez by the gonads. Think again. Juan, like a monkey, is on a very short choker chain. Juan's parents have been placed by Fidel Castro in one of Cuba's Communist Compounds for "their own good," according to the Washington Times. To make absolutely sure that total "mental control" over Juan Miguel is maintained, a plan "was devised whereby only Clintonistas and veteran Castroites would 'stand in' as DGI auxiliaries." The DGI is to Castro what the Gestapo was to Adolf Hitler and the KGB was to Stalin. The DGI is Castro's Secret Police and intelligence gathering network.
According to the New American magazine, Gregory Craig, the Clinton/Castro counsel, "was dispatched to Havana to work things out and accompany Juan Miguel to the United States. Also on the team was 'Reverend' Joan Brown Campbell, former General secretary of the National of Churches, who has been one of Castro's most devoted apologists." This is understandable considering the policies of the NCC and the Communist Party USA are nearly identical. Don't forget to contribute at Church this Sunday, if you want to support the "Communist Cause"!
Not only is the NCC an instrument for Communism, it advocates a World Government. Its head, Rev. Andrew Young, is a formal member of the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations. And most telling of all Young is on the board of directors of Archer Daniels Midland who is cutting deals with Castro. If you think the brave young man who stood in front of the tank in Tiananmen Square had a bad day think what Elian is facing in the hands of these Hitlers.
When is America going to wake up to the fact that the leading so called Christian organization that supports reunification of Elian with Castro is vehemently pro-Communist. In 1927 congressman Arthur M. Free introduced a resolution describing the Federal (now National) Council of Churches as a "communist organization." What is it going to take to get the message across that they are Marxists.
John D. Rockefeller donated enough money to this "communist organization" to represent about 10% of their annual income. In 1942 the Federal (now National) Council of Churches issued a platform calling for " a world government, international control of all armies and navies, etc. etc. " Ironically, their call for a One World Government was during World War Two when Adolf Hitler's National Socialists were fighting for the same thing. Hitler's second book, the one after Mein Kampf was entitled The World Order.
This freeworldalliance team of reporters is calling for the financial boycott of both the Republican and Democratic National Committees as well as the National Council of Churches. This time, we agree with Rush. Don't send them the (GOP) a damn dime. Instead double your donations and redirect then to men like Pat Buchanan, and Miami's Mayor Joe Corollo, who has been, since the onset of the Elian atrocities one of the real heroes in this Orwellian nightmare.
Mayor Joe Corollo was nearly in tears when he talked about the President's terrorist attack. "They came in gassing people," Corollo said. "This is not Nazi Germany." The Mayor is half wrong and half right. It is a Nazi America! The fact is our Nation is becoming a Nazi Police State, championed by Bill Clinton and run by the Fourth Reich of the Rich. The Evilarchy that is running the show seeks to install A New World Order built upon the ashes of America's freedoms. As people wake up they are beginning to see that Clinton is Hitler, without the moustache and wearing a smile!
"We no longer have a silent majority but rather a majority that has been silenced." Says KSFO's radio host Mike Savage. Meanwhile Al Gore who has vacillated back and forth seeking voter support in Florida; murmured, " I ask all Americans to obey the rule of law." Obviously he is not talking about himself or Clinton, who like Hitler, Stalin, and Mao considered themselves "above the law."
"The rule of law" was what Hitler used when he demanded that the German people turn over the Jews to "the proper authorities." Just as Hitler's SS and Gestapo seized innocent children at the gunpoint, to be shipped off to "the camps" surrounded by searchlights, and police, Clinton, in the Elian case is following the same Nazi-like procedure.
The "Clinton's Palace Guard" callously took young Elian from the man who saved his life - then gave him to the murderous men who would enslave him and "mangle his mind." Clinton, Craig and Castro's crew are making sure that little Elian is being hidden from the people and the press. In stark contrast, Elian's Free Cuban family had nothing to hide. They made sure that Elian was made available to both the people and the press.
In Leonard Peikoff's book The Ominous Parallels: The end of Freedom in America , compares America in 1982 with Nazi Germany in the 1930's. On its dust jacket Ayn Rand writes " America is moving toward the establishment of a Nazi type dictatorship in the not-too-distant future." That was eighteen years ago. The reign of terror has begun. Will our people rise to rescue our Republic from this nest of neo-nazis or surrender their guns and sent their children off to reeducation centers & then march willingly to the death camps? Will the future be as Orwell concluded marked by a jackboot being stamped into the human face forever?

Clinton-Reno Acted 'Lawlessly'
With Carl Limbacher and NewsMax.com Staff
For the story behind the story...
Tuesday April 25, 2000; 5:16 PM EDT
Renowned Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz defended President Clinton against all comers when he was charged with lying in Sexgate. He even testified on Clinton's behalf during the House Judiciary Committee's impeachment hearings.
But in a Monday night interview with Fox News Channel's Paula Zahn, he said the Clinton administration acted "lawlessly" when agents seized 6-year-old Elian Gonzalez from the home of his Miami relatives, calling it "a dangerous day for all Americans."
Just hours after Dershowitz made his remarks, constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe echoed his Harvard colleague, writing in Tuesday's New York Times that Attorney General Janet Reno did not have the legal authority to conduct Saturday's pre-dawn assault on the Gonzalez home.
But it was Dershowitz's comments that should be causing the White House the most agitation, coming as they do from a reliable Clinton ally. Appearing on Zahn's Fox show The Edge, the professor got into a heated debate over Elian with former Arizona senator Dennis DeConcini.
After Zahn gave him the floor, the one-time Clinton defender minced no
DERSHOWITZ: They should have gotten a court order. They should have sought to hold the family in contempt. And if the family refused to comply with the court order, then they could have issued contempt citations and arrested the family. But I have a reason why they didn`t go for a court order. They didn`t go for a court order because they knew they couldn`t get one.
DERSHOWITZ: And they acted lawlessly - they couldn`t get one because the 11th circuit had already turned down their request for a court order, and the family would have argued that giving the child over to the father, at this point, would moot the case in the 11th circuit because, predictably, within a few days, Greg Craig will come out with a hand-scrawled little note from Elian saying he now withdraws his application for asylum. This is established to really confirm the terrible precedent that the administration can act without court approval and break into the home of an American citizen. You know, the picture of Elian smiling is the picture of the day, but the picture of the gun-toting INS agent coming into the house is the - is going to be the precedent, the picture in the history books. It`s a dangerous day for all Americans.
ZAHN: Mr. DeConcini, you have long supported the idea of reuniting the little boy with his father. Was this the way to do it?
DECONCINI: Well, unfortunately, it was the only way to do it. I was a prosecutor before elected to the Senate. I`ve great respect for Mr. Dershowitz. He`s testified before the Judiciary Committee many, many times, and the commissioner also. But being a law enforcement official, you have to enforce the law. The INS and the Justice Department had the right to do what they did. Even the 11th circuit confirmed that in their decision just last week. So there was ...
ZAHN: Now, didn`t Mr. Dershowitz say they couldn`t do that?
DECONCINI: No, they could do that. And the law provides that they could do what they did. Now, unfortunately, when you have to enforce the law, whether it was against Orville Faubus in Arkansas or Wallace in ... in ... in other states, you have to enforce the law, even if you disagree with what the people may believe. I know many of those Cuban-Americans. I worked with them for years, and they`re good people, and they wanted to do what they thought was right. But it is - became a political issue here, and I don`t think anybody disputes that now, that that`s what happened. And Janet Reno had to
do what the law gave her permission to do ...
DERSHOWITZ: But the big difference ...
DECONCINI: ... and that was to reunite that son and that father. And anybody
who is a father or a grandfather or a parent can understand the importance
of doing that and not letting that boy be exploited any further than he
ZAHN: Well, Alan - Alan is a father. Jump in there.
DERSHOWITZ: I`m a father and a grandfather, but let me tell you, Senator - I
have enormous respect for you, too, as you know. But the difference between
the Faubus case and the other cases, in all of those cases, they came with a
court order. What happened is they went to court. The issue was resolved
favorably to the government by a court. The great danger is when the
administration, without a court order, can take the law into their own
DECONCINI: Alan, they had the law on their side.
DERSHOWITZ: They had a statute, but ...
DECONCINI: They had a statute that Congress gave them authority to do that.
And that`s what they were acting on.
DERSHOWITZ: But the 11th - they went into the 11th circuit and asked
DECONCINI: And the 11th circuit - but the 11th circuit didn`t say that they
could not follow the law.
DERSHOWITZ: They didn`t say ...
DECONCINI: As a matter of fact, the 11th circuit said they could.
DERSHOWITZ: No, they didn`t. I read the opinion and ...
DECONCINI: Yes, they did.
DERSHOWITZ: No, what the 11th circuit ...
DECONCINI: I did, too.
DERSHOWITZ: The 11th circuit simply didn`t ...
ZAHN: All right, gentlemen ...
DERSHOWITZ: ... refrain from giving ...
ZAHN: ... I`m going to have to ...
DERSHOWITZ: ... them that.
ZAHN: I`m going to have to play mediator on the other side of this break. If you would, please stand by.
Justice Taken Too Far
By LAURENCE H. TRIBE [radical left wing law professor]
April 25, 2000
Some are wildly comparing the armed seizure of Elián González to the roundup of innocents by the Gestapo. Others think Attorney General Janet Reno showed admirable patience in dealing with a group of zealots using the boy as a pawn in its war with Fidel Castro.
But the partisan squabbling over these caricatured views threatens to obscure a vital question: Where did the attorney general derive the legal authority to invade that Miami home in order to seize the child?
The fact is, even on the assumption (which I share) that under applicable legal and moral principles Elián should ultimately be reunited with his father, the government's actions appear to have violated a basic principle of our society, a principle whose preservation lies at the core of ordered liberty under the rule of law.
Under the Constitution, it is axiomatic that the executive branch has no unilateral authority to enter people's homes forcibly to remove innocent individuals without taking the time to seek a warrant or other order from a judge or magistrate (absent the most extraordinary need to act). Not only the Fourth Amendment but also well-established constitutional principles of family privacy require that the disinterested judiciary test the correctness of the executive branch's claimed right to enter and seize.
Although a federal court had ordered that Elián not be removed from the country pending a determination of his asylum petition, and although a court had ruled that the Immigration and Naturalization Service could exercise custody and control of Elián for the time being, no judge or neutral magistrate had issued the type of warrant or other authority needed for the executive branch to break into the home to seize the child. The agency had no more right to do so than any parent who has been awarded custody would have a right to break and enter for such a purpose. Indeed, the I.N.S. had not even secured a judicial order, as opposed to a judicially unreviewed administrative one, compelling the Miami relatives to turn Elián over.
The Justice Department points out that the agents who stormed the Miami home were armed not only with guns but with a search warrant. But it was not a warrant to seize the child. Elián was not lost, and it is a semantic sleight of hand to compare his forcible removal to the seizure of evidence, which is what a search warrant is for.
To be sure, our courts have allowed immigration officials to obtain areawide warrants to search workplaces for illegal aliens, and Congress has by statute empowered immigration officials to search, interrogate and arrest people without warrants in order to prevent unlawful entry into the country. But no one suspects that Elián is here illegally.
In fact, it's hard to see any significant immigration-related or other federal interest in whether Elián was reunited with his father now or after asylum is denied (if that is the outcome). And, should asylum be granted, Elián's father might still be granted custody and could then take the boy to Cuba with him if he so chose; asylum only means permission to stay in the
United States and is not a requirement to stay.
Either way, Ms. Reno's decision to take the law as well as the child into her own hands seems worse than a political blunder. Even if well intended, her decision strikes at the heart of constitutional government and shakes the safeguards of liberty.

Elian, Liberal Racists Declare War on Hispanics
by Richard Poe
April 27, 2000
"Just Nuke Miami?"
An extraordinary article appeared on the front page of New York Press this week (April 26 - May 2, 2000). It was headlined, "Just Nuke Miami." In it, left-wing pundit Alexander Cockburn wrote: "There is a sound case to be made for dropping a tactical nuclear weapon on the Cuban section of Miami. The move would be applauded heartily by most Americans. Alas, Operation Good Riddance would require the sort of political courage sadly lacking in Washington these days."
Cockburn is joking, of course. I am sure he does not really wish to incinerate tens of thousands of Hispanic men, women and children. But, as a Hispanic American myself, I don't find his joke funny. Indeed, it is deeply disturbing to find that genocide against Latino families has become an acceptable topic of humor among the hip, trendy and politically correct crowd.
For many years, the U.S. government has found it convenient to use Cuban-Americans as pawns in its conflict with Castro. Now that Cuba is ready to open its doors to U.S. business, Cuban-Americans are no longer needed. In fact, they are in the way. So the press has declared open season on Cuban-Americans. And all the liberal glitterati are jumping on the bandwagon.
Articles like Cockburn's help me to understand how it felt to be a Jew in 1930s
Germany. At that point, the real killing had not yet begun. But if there was one sure way
for a stand-up comic to get a laugh at the local cabaret, it was to crack
"jokes" about what should be done with the Jews. My father was of Russian
Jewish descent and my mother of Mexican descent. The Jewish half of me takes
genocide very seriously. Now the Mexican half of me must learn to take it seriously too.
Mexican-American author Richard Rodriguez penned an article last week for Pacific News Service titled "Elian - The First Cause That Could Unify Hispanics" (April 20, 2000). He observed that the Elian crisis has forever changed the relationship between Cuban-Americans and other Latinos. "Before Elian Gonzalez floated into our lives," wrote Rodriguez, "many U.S. Hispanics couldn't stand Cuban-Americans. ... They are the richest, best-educated, and (bottled or not) the blondest among us ...
Cuban-Americans, alone among Hispanics, have never portrayed themselves as `minorities'
or 'victims' in the United States. Just the reverse: Cubans have described America as
rescuing them from victimization." That description reminds me of my mother.
Though she is Mexican-American, she thinks more like a Cuban-American. Her family were
middle-class people who fled Mexico to avoid being slaughtered by Pancho Villa. Anyone who
property was fair game for the so-called "revolutionaries" in those days.
My grandparents found refuge in this country. My mother taught us to love the United States as a haven against oppression, violence and tyranny. Like the Cuban-Americans, my mother does not identify herself as a minority. She votes Republican. She (unfortunately) did not teach her children Spanish. She raised us to be assimilated Americans.
Because I have a light complexion, a middle-class upbringing and an Anglo-sounding name (which my Jewish grandfather invented: his real name was Pogrebisky), I have always had the luxury of being able to choose when and where to reveal my Mexican heritage. If I don't tell people, they don't know. This ability to blend in has given me a great advantage in U.S. society.
But today I no longer feel that it is right or moral to blend in. There are times when a man must make a stand or he is not a man. "Elian changed everything," Rodriguez writes in an April 22 update of his article. "For the first time, watching TV footage of the bonfires and arrests in Little Havana on Saturday, we have been seeing Cuban Americans as minorities.... The arrogance that had always separated them from other Hispanics is diminishing."
According to Rodriguez, sympathy for the Cuban-American cause is growing among non-Cuban Hispanics. He writes: "In the days before the federalistas seized the boy and reunited him with his father, Puerto Rican and Dominican flags had joined the parades through Little Havana. And in the Cyclone fence in front of the house of Elian's great-uncle, Lazaro Gonzalez, the predawn raiders may have noticed the flags of Brazil and Mexico ... ."
Like all Americans, Latinos are divided on exactly what to do about Elian and his father. But a growing number - myself included - are beginning to realize that an attack on Cuban-Americans is an attack on all of us.
The lessons of Miami

Magicians have long known how useful it can be to distract the attention of the audience away from what they're really doing. Unfortunately, so have politicians and propagandists. The magnitude of real crimes that the American public is willing to overlook when distracted by a sordid sex scandal, or a soap opera spun around a doe-eyed child, is simply amazing.
One of the underappreciated aspects of the INS raid in Miami was what happened to the residents of the house BEHIND the one where the targeted child was living. Claiming that the action was needed to protect the assault team attacking the private residence listed in their "arrest warrant", the agents first "secured" an entirely separate residence.
As has become standard practice in America today, the heavily armed storm troopers broke down the doors before dawn and "neutralized" those inside. They dragged the manacled residents out of their home and onto the lawn, forcing the terrified captives to publicly prostrate themselves before the black-hooded symbols of state violence. Just what heinous crime justified depriving these individuals of their fundamental rights as freemen? What had they done to deserve having their property destroyed and their privacy violated, as well as being subjected to physical assault and public humiliation by the agents of the state?
The citizens who were rousted from their beds and prostrated on their lawn while masked agents of the state trashed their home hadn't committed a crime, let alone demonstrated that they posed a danger to the public. There was no due process, no proof of guilt before a jury of their peers. Incredibly, their sole "crime" was the suspicion that they might exercise their constitutional rights and fulfill their duties as citizens of a free nation.
The official spokesman at the scene explained that this raid on a private residence was simply a precautionary measure. The police suspected the individuals in the house might own guns. The agents were simply making sure that the suspected guns couldn't be used to resist the primary mission targeting the adjoining private residence. These citizens were violently "neutralized" because someone in the vast "law enforcement" bureaucracy thought they *might* be willing and able to resist outrageous acts by government agents. The government spokesman and the news media both treated this justification as being perfectly reasonable.
Our Constitution protects the rights of the people to both keep and bear arms. In other times, the membership of all able-bodied citizens in the unorganized national militia was recognized as extending the right to be armed into a duty to be armed. These innocent individuals were assaulted specifically because government agents suspected they might be exercising their constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
Many reasonable people are outraged at the actions of the government agents in Miami - regardless of their views on what should be done with the child who is being used to distract our attention. Our Declaration of Independence clearly states that it is the duty of freemen to resist outrageous abuses of power by government agents. These individuals were pre-emptively "neutralized" because the INS suspected they might, as free citizens, be sufficiently offended by the violations of law and court orders the INS was intending to perpetrate next door, to rise to the defense of the intended victims. The suspicion that these individuals might do their duty as citizens became the justification for the violation of their fundamental rights.
Even if the targets of this intentional violence had been guilty of some crime, the state is obligated to treat the accused as innocent until proven guilty. The building entry and suppression tactics they employed were guaranteed to at least cause property damage and substantial physical discomfort for any citizens they find inside. That is if the assault troops didn't murder the innocent citizens outright as so often happens in these kinds of paramilitary operations. The victims of this state violence hadn't been charged with a crime when government agents deprived them of their fundamental rights and destroyed their private property. There was never any intention of respecting the innocence of the targets of this violence. The specific intent of the government agents was to inflict harm on individuals they knew to be entirely innocent.
There has been a lot of noise in the press about the political damage that will result from the "mishandling" of the Elian controversy. But just as after Ruby Ridge and Waco, while the villains put on a show of embarrassment over the trivial issues that have distracted the public's attention, the major crimes they committed against the fundamental principles of freedom go unnoticed.
Did any of the citizens in Miami actually believe that the Waco mass murderers had learned the errors of their ways and abandoned violence as a means of imposing their will? Or did the unpunished mass murders at Waco succeed in intimidating the citizens in Miami into passively allowing their rights to be violated out of a well founded fear of indiscriminate mass murder by government storm troopers?
I've already heard disquieting statements in the mainstream media that since Waco demonstrated government agents would simply kill anyone who resisted, the defense of freedom was no longer a valid justification for the right to bear arms. It has even been claimed that since the mere suspicion citizens might be armed triggers such aggressive violence by government agents, a "citizen" was safer not exercising his constitutional rights. At the cost of a little contrived sadness over the "self-inflicted" deaths at Waco, the storm troopers gained a powerful psychological weapon to use against the freedom of all citizens.
Building on the lessons of Waco we now have the lessons of Miami. While the focus of public attention was distracted into thinking the controversy was about the welfare of a child, the nation was being taught that the courts had no power to restrain the violence of the storm troopers. When the courts refused to rubber-stamp their demands, the storm troopers simply resorted to violence in order to impose their will on those who dared to oppose them. And just as expected, while the storm troopers used brute force to create the reality the courts had denied them, the courts shuffled their papers and demonstrated that the law was nothing but an empty sham - a useful tool for attacking the rights of freemen, but utterly worthless in defending those rights.
Perhaps the most disturbing lesson we were taught in Miami is the redefinition of citizenship. The exercise of a free citizen's rights and duties was once a respected badge of honor. In Miami our rulers demonstrated that even the suspicion of being an honorable citizen is now considered sufficient probable cause for a predawn assault by armed and armored storm troopers. In the land of the formerly free, the exercise of freedom has been perverted into an excuse to violently subjegate those who still value their freedom. An "accidental" death at the hands of black hooded killers who will never be held accountable for their crimes awaits those unwilling to be slaves.
Once again, those who masquerade as the opposition have been making a lot of noise about "investigating" trivial distractions - while ignoring the massive crimes being committed against the fundamental principles of freedom. Once again the media is gearing up to force feed sensationalized drivel to the public until the unthinking masses get bored and tune out, totally oblivious to those few voices sounding the alarm amidst the cacophony of overhyped trivia. Once again Americans have become obsessed with meaningless trivia while refusing to notice that their fundamental rights are being stolen.

THE BOY WITHOUT A COUNTRY
Secret deal made to hand over Elian?
Castro reportedly believes Elian must return or he will fall from power
By David M. Bresnahan

Was atheist Cuban dictator Fidel Castro inspired to make a secret deal to repatriate 6-year-old Elian Gonzalez based on a fanatical belief in a Santeria prophecy? That's the story being told by WorldNetDaily sources including a foreign intelligence analyst and a respected syndicated columnist.
When word of Elian's rescue was first made known in Cuba, it spread quickly among the Santeros -- followers of the polytheistic African-based religion Santeria popularly practiced in Cuba and the Caribbean. The story that was being told was so frightening to Castro that he reportedly became obsessed with his quest to bring Elian back to Cuba.
The Santeros told a story about a young boy who survived alone in the ocean for 48
hours, was not sunburned by the ordeal, and was saved from sharks by dolphins that played
Surely this must be the prophesied reincarnation of the El Egua, went the cry throughout the Catholic and Santeros communities.
The Santeria religion quickly issued the prediction that Elian was the divine El Egua -- one of a number of forms of the Christ child. The prophecy claimed that if El Egua remained in exile, Castro would fall from power, but if El Egua returned to Cuba, Castro would continue to rule.
Cuban Catholics are often influenced by the prophecies of Santeria. Indeed, the two groups share common beliefs about visions of the Virgin Mary and other miracles. A wave of excitement spread through the population, and Castro quickly took notice.
Guillermo Cabrera Infante, a Cuban author living in exile in London, is a respected columnist for the Los Angeles Times Syndicate. In a recent column, he confirmed that Castro is obsessed with bringing Elian back to Cuba because of the predictions of the Santeria.
"Soon after these predictions became known, Mr. Castro began his speeches, roaring threateningly, as he always does," said Infante. He made it clear that, for Castro, the "prophecies of the Santeros are becoming increasingly gloomy: Without the Child, there will be no Castro."
Whether he is El Egua or just Elian Gonzalez, it was indeed a miracle he was found alive. Strapped to an inner tube by his mother before she gave her life in the effort to find freedom, little Elian became a threat, perceived or real, to a powerful communist dictator.
Within days of Elian's rescue, Castro was making demands for his return and canceled an historic visit to give a speech at the University of Washington during the World Trade Organization meetings in Seattle.
Elian celebrated his sixth birthday Dec. 6, 1999, in Miami and the day before Castro issued an angry ultimatum demanding the boy's return within 72 hours. He promised a "battle for world opinion" in his efforts to bring Elian back to communist Cuba.
"He's a fanatical, superstitious, mentally unstable dictator who always gets what he wants like a spoiled child," said a foreign intelligence specialist who spoke with WorldNetDaily on condition of anonymity.
Castro immediately began to call for large mass demonstrations in the streets of Cuba
"At first they had no choice," explained the intelligence source. "The demonstrations were contrived by the government, and even though the people are initially forced to go, they come back time after time because of all the government propaganda. It doesn't take long for the people to believe it all." He added, "Castro is very good at what he does."
Demonstrators have been supplied with flags, T-shirts and signs by the Cuban government, according to numerous press reports of the events. Castro had been looking forward to attending the World Trade Organization and speaking at the University of Washington, according to the source. Plans for the beginning of a new era of trade with the U.S. and other countries were near fruition when Elian focused attention on a Cuba that Castro was trying to get the world to forget. "Elian really messed up his plans, and the plans of some top U.S. businesses that have a stake in commercial growth planned for Cuba," said the source. "They were literally on the eve of a plan to bring Cuba out of darkness. Elian ruined everything -- at first, but in reality he's helping them make Cuba look like the good guys by the way they frame this whole thing."
Less than two weeks after the rescue of Elian at sea, a different group of Cubans began causing trouble for the Clinton administration, and the door was opened for a secret deal between Washington and Havana. Seven Cuban prisoners being held in a Louisiana jail took hostages and issued demands. They had control of over 90 prisoners, as well as the warden and some guards. They controlled the entire second floor of the three-story St. Martin Parish jail.
Thousands of Cuban detainees have been held in U.S. jails and prisons indefinitely because Immigration and Naturalization Service agents consider them to be dangerous. Castro has refused to accept the return of any Cubans for 41 years, so INS keeps them in jail.
Such uprisings are not uncommon. In 1987 over 1,000 Cuban refugee prisoners burned down a detention center in Oakdale, Louisiana. Other uprisings have taken place in several locations. Prisoners and their families have complained to the press that they are not given due process of law.
The INS and FBI were immediately called in to negotiate with the Cubans for a peaceful resolution. A local radio station carried a phone interview with one of the prisoners, who said their only demand was to be taken out of the U.S. and returned to Cuba.
FBI spokeswoman Kris Fortunato confirmed to reporters at the time that Cubans controlled a large portion of the jail and were demanding that they be taken out of the country. She said some hostage prisoners had been released and that over 90 were being held, but she would not tell reporters any details about the negotiations.
A week after the uprising began, it was over. A Department of Justice plane was used to fly six of the Cubans to Havana, with the blessing of Castro something he had said previously that he would never do.
"He has never, ever been willing to accept anyone back. He has made a very strong point of not being willing to even discuss it -- until now that is," explained the intelligence source. "That should tell you something about how motivated he is to get Elian. He made a deal with Reno. He takes the Cuban prisoners off their hands and they return Elian. Why? So they can get back to bringing the new era of commercial growth to Cuba that he was counting on -- and that friends of Bill want." WND's source said there are some intelligence people with whom he works who believe it is critical for Castro to stay in power. If Castro falls, many Cubans may see it as an opportunity to flee to Florida. Therefore, the new strategy being pursued by some is to find a way to improve the Cuban economy to help keep Cubans in Cuba.
Castro told the press he accepted the prisoners back to Cuba because "a bloody outcome must be avoided," and made it clear that he considered this a one-time deal, granted as an exception to his policy purely for humanitarian reasons. In the same speech, he renewed his demand for the return of Elian, and called for more protests in the streets.
The opposition to efforts to return Elian to Cuba was just starting to grow beyond the Cuban community. Republican Party Chairman Jim Nicholson offered to personally pay for Elian's entire family to fly from Cuba to the U.S. And Republican Senators Connie Mack and majority leader Trent Lott led a team of senators who signed a letter to President Clinton asking him to grant Elian citizenship.
The fate of the prisoners returned to Cuba is unknown. The Immigration and Naturalization Service identified the six Cubans as Lazaro Orta Elisalte, 48; Juan Miranda Salot, 45; Jonne Ponte Landrian, 28; Jorge Ramirez Acosta, 45; Mario Mora Medina, 32; and Gerardo Santana Morales, 26. A seventh Cuban, Roberto Villar Grana, 31, was not returned to Cuba because he was the subject of another investigation, according to INS.
James Foley, State Department spokesman, said the government was happy the
standoff was ended peacefully. "We believe this resolution is in the best interest of the United States," Foley said.
Cuban Foreign Ministry spokesman Alejandro Gonzalez told the press at the time the prisoners were repatriated that the deal had nothing to do with the dispute over Elian.
"These people were immediately interrogated while a careful investigation is carried out based on information from U.S. authorities and the characteristics of these citizens. Once this analysis is finished, the most fair and logical decision will be taken in each case," Gonzalez told Reuters. There has been no further comment from Cuba about the status of the prisoners.
Castro delivered on his end of the deal, says WND's intelligence source, and he expected the U.S. to do the same.
"He really thought it would only be a matter of days before Elian would be back. The delays literally turned him into a raving maniac," said the source.
Castro stepped up the protests and his public relations tactics to win the sympathy of the world for a boy separated from his father.
The Department of Justice used federal agents to forcibly remove Elian at gunpoint from the Miami home of his great-uncle Lazaro Gonzalez on April 22, after pressure was placed on Reno to bring the impasse to an end.
"Castro and Clinton made a new deal to bring the boy to a tightly secured facility where he could be treated with drugs and reconditioned before being seen in court or by the public," said the source. "Cuban officials would be given complete control of the situation at the Aspen Institute, which is an ideal location. It was the next best thing to bringing him directly to Cuba, and it would actually make the court process much easier to get through, because Castro would just lose it if the court didn't agree to send him home to Cuba. It's all over now, except for the formalities and procedures."
WITHOUT A COUNTRY
"This is a lesson for us ... public opinion [in the United States] deserves much more consideration and should be taken into account," declared the Cuban dictator.
"For me," said Castro, " there have been two important moments in which public opinion has played a key role -- during the Vietnam war, and in the case of Elian Gonzalez."
Castro's remarks were reported by Radio Habana Cuba, the official broadcasting service of the Cuban government.
Castro's intention to give "much more consideration" to American public opinion received little acknowledgment in the establishment media in the U.S.
During the five months of the Elian Gonzalez case, "public opinion has had time to reflect" on the issue, Castro stated. It was during this period, and especially in the last few weeks, that "most influential media outlets" in the U.S. gave constant support to the position of the Clinton government to the detriment of Elian's American relatives.
Radio Habana noted that "virtually all" of the "most influential media outlets" in the U.S. have favored "forcible removal" of Elian.
Radio Habana chose the Tuesday, April 25 editorial from the Chicago Tribune as an example "reflecting the position of virtually all the major news dailies." Radio Habana cited several Tribune statements, including those labeling the Republican reaction to the Elian Gonzalez raid as exaggerated, and the Tribune's doubts as to the fitness of the Republicans to govern.
Of course, the "most influential media outlets" did not truly reflect American public opinion, which remains deeply divided regarding the status and ultimate fate of Elian.
In contrast to the diverse and comprehensive coverage of the Elian case in the New Media -- that is, the Internet and talk radio -- the establishment media's solid support for the Castro/Clinton position has clearly provided the Cuban dictator hope for influencing the American public on other issues in the future.
Though the political and social dogmas dominating Cuba have changed little since communism took hold in the island over 40 years ago, they have been given a contemporary appeal.
During the recent G-77 meeting of underdeveloped nations held in Havana two weeks ago, the "first world" was condemned not only for its great wealth, but also for the amount of natural resources used in relation to its population.
The market economy was attacked, as might have been expected, but so was the
"techie class," whose wealth, the Cuban government claims, is driving others
into poverty. Mandatory sentencing of felons also was condemned as being overly harsh, and
contributing to the large number of prisoners in the United States.
Elian, Clinton and a Prayer made in Havana
by Leland Faegre, Libertarian Candidate, State Senate District 29
In authoritarian style, and by now familiar to Americans who witnessed the stormtroopers at Waco, Machiavellian Attorney General Janet Reno, has lectured the American people on the "rule of law" while her own Justice Department unashamedly ignores the same.
In an interview with Fox News Channel's Paula Zahn following the pre-dawn raid,
renowned Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz who has defended President Clinton ad
nauseam during laffaire Lewinsky, said the Clinton administration acted
"lawlessly" when agents seized 6-year-old Elian Gonzalez calling it, "a
dangerous day for all Americans."
DERSHOWITZ: "They should have gotten a court order. They should have sought to hold the family in contempt. And if the family refused to comply they could have issued contempt citations and arrested the family. But I have a reason why they didn`t go for a court order because they knew they couldn`t get one "
Just hours after Dershowitz made his remarks, constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe echoed his Harvard colleague, writing in the New York Times that Janet Reno did not have the legal authority to conduct the pre-dawn assault on the Gonzalez home.
TRIBE: "The Justice Department points out that the agents who stormed the Miami
home were armed not only with guns but with a search warrant. But it was not a warrant to
seize the child. Elián was not lost, and it is a semantic sleight of hand to compare his
forcible removal to the seizure of evidence, which is what a search warrant is for."
Does Juan Miguel Gonzalez really want to return to the Cuban slave state? Sober up Sergio:
Spanish reporter Mauricio Vincent, of the socialist Madrid newspaper El Pais, says that Juan Miguel told him that he wanted Elian to go to the United States.
The Miami Herald discovered that on November 26, 1999, the day after Elian was rescued, Juan Miguel Gonzalez had obtained certified copies of Elians birth certificate and his marriage certificate to his deceased ex-wife, Elizabeth. These documents would be required for Juan Miguel to obtain a non-immigrant visa. More proof he was hoping to leave legally?
Before Juan Miguel came to the U.S., his parents were moved to a special compound where they would be under the close supervision of Castros secret police. This is a standard Communist practice: increase your leverage on those traveling abroad with the threat that harm will befall their relatives if they dont come back or perform satisfactorily.
Basking from his influence in American media and public opinion, Castro and his U.S. agents have effectively pre-empted U.S. Law by their force majeure. On American soil, the re-education of Elian Gonzalez has already begun, where only the Presidents impeachment lawyer has access to the Wye River Plantation. Can a Washington-Havana rapprochement be far behind?
It wont be long before Elian Gonzalez wonders why his mothers death and his Thanksgiving Day rescue was actually a prayer made in Havana.
